Only if you're Mr & Mrs Ever-Ready's favourite offspring.
I don't know if my project is something a beginner should be taking on so if there are any projects anyone can recommend for me to get my feet wet with that would be cool too.
What part of my project would make it that difficult?
You call yourself a beginner at this topic. Are you actually a true beginner? Yet, once you have an Arduino, you want to make something like this already. I imagine this: an audio shield of some kind with SD card slot, advanced programming to efficiently send all the audio sine waves, construction of the box, placement and soldering! I just do Arduino for fun, so I'll probably never do something like this, spending big bucks!
I think all the soldering I would need to do would be the button switch
If that doesn't work, try a reed switch and a magnet. Careful with the magnet!
I need to do my homework now.
I didn't touch Arduino for a week!
